Hochzeit im Paradeis

Hochzeit im Paradeis
Hochzeit im Paradeis

Saint Georg is apparently battling against the dragons of middle-class complacency. Another variant of social agreement, marriage, is woven together from childlike musings in this film: "I am going to marry Max."
Like in Alice in Wonderland , body size plays a role, but it´s not key; whereas rural simplicity, paradise, definitely is. But what´s the groom doing with the "Paradeiser" (Austrian German for tomatoes)? And what´s the mother of the bride doing with the priest´s hand?
The whole thing´s a bit surreal. (F.v.G.)
